Andre Roussiemoff was a Frenchman born in the forties with a disorder often referred to as gigantism. this disorder floods the body with growth hormones. By the age of 12, Andre was the size of a full grown man and was therefore very useful on his father's farm but before long he got into wrestling, where he found fame. He went to Canada and became Andre the Giant.

The punishment inevitable in professional wrestling plus the disorder of gigantism left Andre suffering great and constant pain. His manager therefore refused to allow André to keep wrestling. This damaged their relationship so that when André the Giant died in 1993 of congestive heart failure, he did so alone, to the grief of his manager. Andre was only 46.

He passed on from a Congestive heart failure. André René Roussimoff popularly known as André the Giant, was a French wrestler. His size was an eventual outcome of gigantism caused by plenitude development hormone, which later achieved acromegaly.

After WrestleMania VI, André spent whatever is left of his in-ring livelihood in All Japan Proficient Wrestling (AJPW) and Mexico's Comprehensive Wrestling Association, where he performed under the name "André el Giantte."
